We have been to the Portola twice in the last two years. Both times we were so impressed by the quality of the rooms, the friendliness and co-operation of the staff and the great location to many of the sites in Monterey.
The reception area was very helpful with "How to get here and there" and check-in/check-out was smooth. The room was very nice and the bed was so comfortable with a great pillow menu.
The restaurant staff was friendly and helpful and attentive. They did their best to quickly get us a table and take our order even when they were very busy. The food was very good. We had the great breakfast buffet and the awesome dinner with wine included with our package.
The wharf area with several shops and restaurants is nearby as are other great restaurants by the marina. Take a free trolley with stops out front and across the square in back and go downtown or to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Children are welcome and they have a nice pool area to keep them entertained. There is also a candy store right out the back.
We will go again soon.
